THAT !!

In yrs past I was ADDICTED to the Rem M 6 pumps. Still really like them and have 'some'.

But I have fallen head over heels for the 'CLASSY', slim, trim, svelte, CURVACEOUS Featherweight.

Is that one that Jan re-did the bolt handle on, when he was still with Martini Gunmakers?

One of mine has an original ZG-47 bolt handle done that way by them, I like it, but, have found a couple of longer Obie-style bolt handles and am having these installed on a couple of my other 21/22 rifles.

I still prefer the factory "round bolt" in these to any other rifle I have ever seen and the one I have is well used, pristine bore and shoots like the proverbial lazer.

To date, I have owned 8 of these superb little rifles, kept 6 as a couple had minor cosmetic issues and I have several ZGs as well. I have never seen an original 7x64B, I would do almost anything to get one of those actions to go with the ZG action I have to build a pair in 7x64B and 9,3x64B......great stuff,eh! smile

That's the one. Wish he wasn't so far away!
I am currently getting an original round bolt, single trigger 21H 8x57IS worked on by my local gunsmith, dropped it off last week to get a NECG three position locking safety and bolt shroud installed. When it's done it just might be my new "favourite"!
but if I could find a ZG47 in 9.3x62 I might have to reconsider that...

Mine was my Vanguard S2 in 257Wby. I made the mistake of letting one of my best friends borrow it. He said I couldn't have it back and would have to accept cash instead.

I'm ok with it, kinda been wanting to upgrade to a 257Wby in a Mark V action anyway. Just haven't seen the right one pop up in the classifieds. If I'd known mine wasn't coming home, I would have jumped on Safariman's custom Pre-64 when it came back up for sale a few weeks ago!


Those who must raise their voice to get their point across are generally not intelligent enough to do so in any other way.

Mine would be a tossup of Ruger tang safety ultralight in .257 Roberts or my Rem Mountain Rifle blue/walnut in 30-06.

For sentimental reasons the 336, 30-30 Marlin I got from my parents at the age of 12. Then it was a 338-06 Weatherby SBGM that converted me to a bolt gun guy. For the last couple of seasons it has been a Weatherby SS Carbine in 7mm-08. Now I have another 7mm-08 coming soon bought off the fire that may take its place, you never know.

I'm fortunate to own some nice hunting rifles so, this is a tough one. My favorite is probably my pure stock Ruger 358 Win M77 Hawkeye. It shoulders well, it is a pleasure to shoot and, reloading accurately for this caliber is quick and easy. A close second is my CZ 550 American in 9.3x62....it is almost a toss-up.


Start young, hunt hard, and enjoy God's bounty.

Kute, I have been offered a 21 7x64 Brenneke by a Gentleman I know in Queensland....he also has a ZG47 in the same chambering.
Both are close to pristine.


These are my opinions, feel free to disagree.

For me its a tie between my 3 Browning Aceras for first place. CZ 527 Target Royal comes in a close second. I have much nicer rifles that those 4 but for some reason they get picked up the most.

Probably my favourite, though not the one I hunt with the most, and not even the one I shoot the most is a Ruger #1 in 405 Winchester topped with a Leupy 2-7X33 VX-II. Shoots really accurately, and hammers both ends if you want to chase a 300 grainer downrange at 2500 fps.

And here's a 100 yard group I shot with hunting speed ammo as above.

For purely nostalgia, it would have to be the 1948 Browning pump 22LR that Mom gave to Dad for his birthday the year they got married. He willed it to me. I have no idea how many bullets have been chased out the muzzle on that one, but Dad told me that he used to buy a brick every payday (2 weeks). Still light matches with it.

Shootist :

I have a great admiration of the # 1s. I've had a few in the past, all.270s.

Regardless of cal/cart my preference is for the model similar to yours.

I like the A H forends and 22" blls. SWEET!


The TC encores are NOT in the same league w/# 1s.

Got 4 favorites these days,meaning I trust them to hold POI,function flawlessly,go bang when I want them to regardless of conditions,and I have killed with them.

They are:

-pre 64 M70 in 375H&H with Krieger tube and Brown stock.
-pre 64 M70 FW 270 with Krieger tube and Brown Pound'R.
-pre 64 M70 FW 270 with factory metal and McMillan Compact Edge

The 280 Remington is overbore.

The 7 Rem Mag is over bore.

favorite rifle? without a doubt my LH Sako Mannlicher Carbine .308 (thanks John Wooters)-

Ruger 270, its been bedded and the trigger tuned.

I have others that I really like. I have a Cooper 280 AI that's scary accurate, but it doesn't feel like the Sako or Ruger does, when I am in the field.
